We had a very enjoyable week here in September and would have loved to stay longer. The cottage is clean, well furnished and warm. The twin room enjoys the morning sunshine. Great Bernera is a lovely island with the post office, community centre and church an easy stroll away. Bosta beach is a longer walk or short car journey but worth a visit. Great sunbathing overlooking Loch Roag and the hills beyond from the croft.
Calum was very helpful and we enjoyed the welcome pack of goodies.

The cottage was really good.difficult for infirm elderly in law seats to low and grab rail by toilet would have been great help. Boiler kept losing pressure but not really an issue as knew how to fix. Neighbour Claire a star with free duck eggs (donated to RNLI). Bed incredibly comfy. Free welcoming pack fantastic.

“Peaceful bliss”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Firstly it was brilliant to be able to take 2 dogs with us on holiday, they had a fantastic time. The cottage was well equipped and comfortable, the beds were especially comfy. The location was brilliant, away from everything but not too far to the supermarkets in Stornaway. The beach and iron age house at Bosta are well worth a visit. Reef beach is beautiful, as are all the beaches. The neighbours of the cottage were kind with duck eggs and dog treats. Calum the owner was really helpful. We would be happy to return here year after year.

“Lovely and relaxing holiday!”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Welcome pack much appreciated and the cottage was very clean and comfortable.Everything we needed was provided. The cottage was well equipped even providing shampoo and conditioner sachets if required. The smoke alarm battery needed changing and started to bleep every 40 seconds and despite being late at night Callum sent his brother in law to fix it which was much appreciated. Our only problem was on the last night having a final look at the magnificent sunset over the Atlantic the two seater bench collapsed, looking at it the wood was rotten and chose then to give up the ghost on our last night.thankfully no harm done. But I am sure had it have been at the begining of the holiday Callum is the type of gentleman who would have replaced this. The neighbours were very friendly giving us tasty duck eggs and on our second week more fresh duck eggs and treats for our dog.Our dog was on holiday with us and we had the unexpected bonus of a huge fenced field opposite for him to run in safely which he throughly enjoyed also the fencing is secure around the cottage for a larger dog. We could not believe how quiet and serene the area was. The sea views were Amazing a constant changing picture. Sunrise and sunset were fantastic. The cottage is in an ideal position to enjoy both. Bosta beach ten minutes away in the car was breathtaking. We also recommend luskintyre and reef Beach . Hanging out washing in the wind was a new experience but it dries quickly. We throughly enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending this cottage. We would definitely stay here again!

“Lovely cottage, fab week”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our second visit to Harsgeir Cottage. We and our two spaniels thoroughly enjoyed our stay once again. The place is lovely! Very cosy on the wet & windy days and the views of the sunset are gorgeous.
The welcome pack of delicious goodies & lovely flowers were very much appreciated. Lewis is a stunning island. Close by is Bosta beach with the Iron Age house, which is stunning. The community cafe is friendly & worth the visit. There is a weaver close by who produces beautiful work which is also well worth visiting. Explore and enjoy!
